you exactly what mitt romney is going to say in wednesday's presidential debate, and i'm going to tell you how you back home can rebut his claims. how do i know what he is going to say? because a talking point's memo from the campaign to romney's surrogates and allies it was leaked today. i know from experience that a memo coming like this just two days before a debate it is intended to prepare the surrogates and allies to parrot really the candidate to repeat and reinforce his position on every issue. so you are ready to hear it and it makes his ability to defend at the debate that much so that's what this memo is all about. wednesday's debate is going to focus on three of the most contentious issues of the campaign. the focus will be on the role of government, the economy and health care. mitt romney has a history of shall we sa waffling a little bit on these important issues we even have a collection of mitt's flip flops here inside the war room but this suggests where his position is actually going to be on wednesday night. first off, the role of g

romney supporter. the brown warren debate. if you want to have some fun this morning if you're feeling like you're unpopular in the workplace, do on the twitter and just search the words david and gregory and see what pops up. because after last night's debate, i have never seen more scorn heat on a debate moderator in my life. i didn't see the entire debate. i saw most of it and i think david gregory was really hard on both candidates. and if you look on the twitter today, you'll see liberals feel he was completely biased and conservatives feel the same way. maybe david was doing something right. he was not doing something right over the weekend on "meet the press" when he actually misquoted the president. to a rather alarming extent and falsely claimed that barack obama had claimed that al-qaeda had been defeated. of course, if you heard the actual speech of barack obama he talked about how al-qaeda was on the run. he said barack obama had said that the goal that i set to defeat al-qaeda and deny it a chance to

, god, i love debates. have you eh seen mitt romney so animated. i always figured he was kind of a stickler for the rules guy, but to go so far as to kind of tattle on rick perry. and what about the time that president obama was kurt with hilary clinton. >> i don't think i am that bad. >> you are likable enough hilary. >> thank you. >> jennifer: there has been endless speculation about who is going to do better and of course the fact is they both have weaknesses when it comes to debating, and how do they get over those weaknesses. joining us tonight for more on how we can expect the to perform is alan schroeder. he is a professor of journalism at northeastern university and author of "presidential debates: 50 yours of high risk tv". love it! welcome inside "the war room" professor. >> thank you very much. i wanted to start by saying can i call you jennifer the way that sarah palin -- >> only if you wink when you do that. >> right. right. >> jennifer: you absolutely can, let's start with the candidate's weaknesses. you have said that president obama has several

in a presidential debate like this. >> obama: who will have the zingers. >> romney: the $10,000 bet. >> no matter how many times they tell you they are he going start talking specifics really soon, they don't do it. >> it would take me too long to go through all of this now. >> the reason is because the math doesn't work. >> the devil is in the details. >> the devil is in the details. the angel is in the policy. >> why are you and romney losing? >> cenk: indeed, why are you losing? well, ladies and gentlemen it appears we got 'em. now last week i predicted that the race was over. but before that if you watch the show you know on set 19th i made a different prediction, not only would we believe that, but the republicans would believe it and act in accordance. we're going to count up, and we're going to find out how many days it will take before the republicans pull the chute and say, no, we're not putting any more money in the presidential race. we're shifting the money in the senate and congressional races because it will happen, and it appears that it has happened. listen to the report on fox ne

and just three points in nevada where the debates are taking place tonight. with both romney and the president wrapping up final debate practice yesterday, joe biden was in north carolina and paul ryan in iowa. they traded jabs over the middle class. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been buried. we agree. >> mitt romney is under pressure to give more details into both his tax reform proposal and plans for the middle class. yesterday, he finally offered up an idea saying in order to pay for his reform each taxpayer would have a limit on how much they could deduct. the number he threw out was $17,000 and compared that to a bucket saying you can take whatever deductions you want but once you hit $17,000 that's it. we heard his plan for undocumented immigrants. he would not revoke the temporary limitations adopted by the president but if elected there would be no more protections. we're coming back after the break. >> i wouldn't be where i am today if it wasn't for capella university. i go to work every day and know that i
